The iconic Dunhill name has a reputation for quality, well-made cigarette lighters and other smoking implements. The company’s origin can be traced to Alfred Dunhill opening his first tobacco shop in London in 1907. Over time, Dunhill was responsible for some of the finest petrol and butane lighters in the world. Even to this day, the iconic name carries its legacy.

The Dunhill Unique was the first lighter launched by the brand. They were manufactured from 1925 to 1928. There were several finishes, like a chromiom lighter, solid silver lighter (manufactured by the Wise and Greenwood workshop, a well known silversmith) and this gold plated finish. This lighter still has the straight arm, thus making it pre 1928, because after the curved “Dunhill arm” was introduced.
